Could be a number of reasons it quit. You crossed the power wires blowing the diodes for protection, or you over loaded it an blew a MOSFET, the fuse blew, or a number of things. You have got to be more specific.

SOURCE: power inverter

Most likely a fuse. Check for a fuse on the inverter itself or one inline with the plug. Usually you can screw off the tip of the plug and replace the fuse inside.

SOURCE: power going up and down

An incandescent lamp that is cold takes approximately 10 times the running current initially. The inverter MAY not be able to start the 500 watt lamp if its protection circuits sense the very low starting resistance of the lamp.

Test the inverter on some other device first.

SOURCE: work out how long my battery will last using a

Your said your battery is rated for 85 amps / hour. This means 1 hour at 85 amps, 42 hours at 2 amps, 85 hours at 1 amp or any number of hours in between determined by 85 divided by the number of amps of the load connected. The microwave uses 600 watts. Since we can't reliably determine amps in an AC circuit - I can get close using the DC calculation. I'll assume 120 Volts at 600 watts for the microwave. Watts = Volts multiplied by Amps, so the microwave uses about 5 amps (120 x 5 = 600). HOWEVER, this is not an accurate way to determine AC amps when voltage and watts are known. I'll bet the microwave has the actual amount of amps (along with the model, voltage, wattage etc.) on a label on the back, side or inside the door. This is the information that is accurate. Use the amp rating provided on the name plate to determine how long the batter will last. Assume 8.5 amps is the value provided on the name plate.. 85 amp hour (85 AH) battery would supply an 8.5 amp (8.5 A) load for 10 hours because: 85 AH divided by 8.5 A = 10 H. The quality of the battery, and the losses contributed by the inverter will reduce the actual amount of time that the battery could supply the microwave.

I hope this helps!

SOURCE: Overloaded my inverter -now only works when hooked to car battery

It sounds like the fuse that protects you cigarette lighter is blown.

After you have replaced the fuse, check the voltage again. 0.015vdc would not have powered anything that in manufactured to operate on 12vdc.

When powering anything over about 250W, I would suggest connecting directly to the battery to avoid overloading the lighter circuit.

Overloaded inverter will not power up


Have you checked the voltage going to the inverter? Sounds like you may have exceeded the load that he inverter can handle but not enough information to confirm that from this end. You mention "plugged into my van battery", possibly you have this plugged into your Cigar Lighter? Mega fuses are usually really high amperage fuses, much more than the inverter could blow and save the inverter. The fuse should be matched to the load and about 50% higher. If the device is rated at 10 amps, a 15 amp fuse will provide protection where a mega with 500 amps will act like no fuse at all to the inverter.

Just connected my durite 1000w inverter to battery wrongly got a big spark now will not work


Check the fuses . Look inside for a fuse on the circuit board. There may be some burned up components inside too.

Probably blew either an internal fuse or a diode, open it up, take a look, what do you have to lose?

Durite inverter


If the unit doesn't have an external fuse and it doesn't reset itself after an overload, it possibly has an internal (onboard) fuse that needs replaced. Possibly de-soldered and re-soldered...

My Motor Trend Inverter 400 watt give's me a fault light upon start up. The fuse is good


Sadly replacement is the best option. It is just not cost effective to get the inverter repaired.

The cost starts out about 150.00.

Best option is to take it back to where you purchased it and hope you can get a new one.

Hope this tip helps.

Am a seven each power inverters owner.

Recommendations: Purchase a Pure sine inverter 1500 watt. We have had one of these running 24 seven for almost a year now.

Can't get power to my RoadPro 1500 DC to AC Power Inverter


I have had this same problem with several power inverters over time. The problem is usually one of three things.

Those starting with the simplest.

1. Too much current being drawn on the inverter.
Solution (Check appliances that are plugged in and make sure they are not drawing more than 1200 watts. If they are unplug the appliance that is using the most current and get an inverter that is more suited to your power needs.)

2. Some power inverters have fuses built on to them. Sometimes multiple fuses. Sometimes, one fuse may burn out leaving one intact. When this happens even small items draw too much current and over load the inverter.
Solution (Replace the fuses)

3. Improper installation. Inverters draw a lot of current. You must use the propper wire size for the inverter. I would recomend at least an eight guage wire directly fused and hooked directly to the battery. Of course like with all things the bigger the wire the better the flow of electricity.

If it is not one of those things stop into a truck stop electronics shop and have the person diagnose it.

Hope that helps.
